Changing the magnification of your drawing

You can change the magnification of your drawing at any time by zooming. The cursor changes to a magnifying glass () when a Zoom tool is active. Zoom out to reduce the magnification so you can see more of the drawing, or zoom in to increase the magnification so you can see a portion of the drawing in greater detail. Changing the magnification of the drawing affects only the way the drawing is displayed; it has no effect on the dimensions of the entities in your drawing.

NOTE If you are working in a layout viewport and cannot zoom, the layout viewport may be locked. The scale and view do not change in model space while panning or zooming in a locked layout viewport.

Zooming in and out

One of the easiest ways to change the magnification of the drawing is to zoom in or out by a preset increment. On the View toolbar, the Zoom In tool () doubles the current magnification of the drawing. The Zoom Out tool () reduces the magnification of the drawing by half. The portion of the drawing located at the center of the current viewport remains centered on the screen as you zoom in and out.
